I’d like to speak briefly on what this scene really means for Han Solo. This is the apex of his character development. When we met Han in ANH, He’s charismatic and attractive, but also very self interested and inconsiderate. Leia notices this almost right off the bat, saying to Luke “Your friend is quite the mercenary. I wonder if he cares about anything. or anybody.” That’s where his character development really starts. Now, getting back to this scene. Han is MADLY in love with Leia. So in love that when he thinks that she’s in love with Luke, he’s hurt, yeah, but he wants her to be happy more than he wants to be happy. So he just says “fine” and promises to stay out of the way to let them be together. God. I miss when Lucas was a good writer.
